When it comes to connecting an iPod to your car, you have any number of options. Many times you can solve the problem using a simple cassette adaptor. But since most 2006 Ford Focus models lack a cassette deck (unless you've installed one yourself), there are other ways to connect your iPod to your Focus. Using an AM/FM radio transmitter, you can listen to your personal playlist through your car's speakers wherever you go.

  1. 1

    Connect the AM/FM adaptor to your iPod. Some connect only through the iPod's headphone jack, while others recharge the device as you drive, connecting through your car's auxiliary power port (commonly known as the cigarette lighter input), as well as the headphone input. Read the user manual individual to your AM/FM adaptor for more information on set-up.

  2. 2

    Set the AM/FM adaptor's output station. Usually a switch is on the device that is marked by several stations. Select one that is blank or static on your radio to avoid interference from a local radio station.

  3. 3

    Turn on your car's stereo, and turn the volume down low so you won't deafen yourself when your iPod connects to your car's speakers.

  4. 4

    Push the AM/FM button on your car's stereo to switch it to radio mode. Make sure it matches your AM/FM adaptor's settings for AM or FM.

  5. 5

    Press the up and down arrows on the tune selector to sync the radio station with the AM/FM adaptor. The station on your radio must match the selected station on the adaptor.

  6. 6

    Power on your iPod, and press the Play button. Adjust the volume of your car's sound system by turning the volume knob clockwise to increase volume, and counterclockwise to lower volume levels.
